# 1Constable Chris Aug 13 2017, 14:39 PM
Greetings RA3 Community. It has been over 1 year since 1.12.5 released, and since that release, we have been working in the shadows on yet another version. We read your feedback about 1.12.5, and consequently shaped 1.12.6 based on this feedback.

As promised, we delivered more and more bug fixes in 1.12.6 ,some of which are very severe bugs and banned exploits, making 1.12.6 superior to it's predecessors . We also threw a LOT of emphasis on polishing , by fixing animations, discrepancies, and even the tiniest details, to ensure that 1.12.6 gives a truly refreshing RA3 experience.

Before we go over the current change list and patch notes, please have a look at the following important notes:


Important Notes(Please Read):


-These maps CANNOT be transferred in-game . If they are transferred in game , they will desync when the player who recieved them attempts to play them . ViperMkVII is currently working on a solution for this , but for now , please do not transfer them in-game.

-The 1.12.6 Version of the ladder maps , will become the ranked maps , alongside the original ones .

-For clarification , these maps contain more than just fixes for map bugs. They also contain game bug fixes and graphical updates, meaning these maps hold content different from the original game.

-These maps can be played online , without any issues , just like 1.12.4 and 1.12.5 .

Patch Notes , Map List , and Special Thanks

He assisted in fixing one bug. That's singular. Spanish: uno. French: un. Chris busted his ass for months working on this, and THAT'S the real reason why this patch is amazing.

I believe bug 10 is good if the turret doesn't fire after it is sold.
I think many sov players use 9, why should it be banned?
I think the bug that assault destorier cannot use F when it is stopped by tdrone should be fixed.
how about making the shields of ad and Athena smaller after it is shrinked?(this is Jasper's idea, he said he has told u about it) or make it displayed as the shields are not shrinked?

As stated in the conclusion , that patch notes are subject to change, meaning more bug fixes will likely be added before the final release, including the bugs which you guys just mentioned smile.gif , but nothing is a guarantee.

UPDATE 1:

2 new bug fixes have been added :

21- Fixed a bug where Terror Drones disable the Assault Destroyer's Black Hole Armor.
22- Fixed a bug where IFV missiles do not damage Tengus or VX , or any aircraft, that are landing.

@Messi, I tested the bug that you referred to , and it seems that infantry can get crushed under the Assault Destroyer's black hole armor just fine. The same goes to the Athena's Aegis shield.

Can you explain how the bug happens ?
